Israel and Lebanon resumed US-mediated talks on Wednesday over their disputed Mediterranean Sea border.
 
The Lebanese delegation was headed by Lebanese Armed Forces Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations Brigadier General Bassam Yassine and was formed of Colonel Marine Staff Mazen Basbous, Petroleum Sector Administration member Engineer Wissam Shbat, and expert Dr. Najib Masihi.
 
Talks were held amid tight security measures from the Lebanese army and the United Nations Interim Forces In Lebanon (UNIFIL) in Naqoura.
 
This as the Lebanese delegation submitted documents and maps proving Lebanon’s right in the border of its maritime waters according to the recognized law of the sea, as the delegation clings to Lebanon's right from its 1,430 square kilometers maritime area.
 
Later in the day, a joint statement was released by the Government of the United States and the Office of the UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon on the Israel-Lebanon maritime talks:

“Today, representatives from the governments of Israel and Lebanon held productive talks mediated by the United States and hosted by the Office of the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon (UNSCOL). We remain hopeful that these negotiations will lead to a long-awaited resolution.  The parties committed to continuing negotiations in early December,” the statement read.
